Linear Wave Springs
Smalley Linear Wave Springs are a continuous wave formed (marcelled) wire length produced from spring tempered materials. They act as a load bearing device having approximately the same load/deflection characteristics as a wave spring. Axial pressure is obtained by laying the linear spring fiat in a straight line.

Smalley Linear Springs are used to load pins that are positioned inside grooves so a rotating element can detent to spécifie positions. The springs are designed to exert a précisé load to give the rotation a desired résistance.
Rotary Vane Pump
Smalley Linear Springs are used to radially load the bottom of the vanes in the pump. The springs energize the vanes against the bore for better sealing.
